Toy maker Mattel recently released a new limited-edition David Bowie Barbie doll.
The second David Bowie doll in its Barbie Signature Collection was released to mark the 50th anniversary of Bowie’s 1971 album, Hunky Dory.
The David Bowie Barbie Doll #2 is dressed in a replica powder-blue suit Bowie wore in his “Life on Mars?” music video.
The doll’s outfit includes other iconic details such as the foil-printed pin-stripe shirt, the statement tie, platform shoes, blue eye shadow and “a hairstyle inspired by Bowie’s 70s glam era,” Mattel said.
“David Bowie was a one-man cultural phenomenon for his contributions to music, art, fashion, and film – and the doll is a tribute to the pop legend who continue to be recognized as a cultural vanguard,” the toy brand added.
Barbie first honored Bowie three years ago by recreating his Ziggy Stardust alter ego, complete with space suit and makeup effects in doll form.
The new David Bowie Barbie doll, priced at $50, will be available on MattelCreations.com, Amazon, Walmart and Target.
